Those of you who had visions that there was enough fan unrest about the last two years to impact ticket sales for the Boise State game, guess again. (h/t lucid idiocy)

Hmmmm…..doesn’t quite seem to jive with what Bill King reported yesterday.
“UGA has announced that all previous requests for Boise State tickets made by 2011 Hartman Fund donors will be fulfilled and everyone who contributed at least $100 is eligible to request additional upper level tickets for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. Let’s make sure the Dome is packed to the rafters with red shirts!”
Wonder where the disconnect is there?
I guess maybe there are still tickets available, they’re just holding them for the donor requests. If there’s still some available come August, then we’ll probably see them go back up on the website for sale.
I think several hours between what King reported yesterday and the sell-out today explains the disconnect. That is, the tickets were snatched up quickly.
Got it, that makes sense too.
Yep, plus there weren’t that many extra tickets to begin with.
I don’t think there will ever be causation between ticket sales for UGA vs. a top 10 ten and fan unrest with the program.
There were plenty of people suggesting differently yesterday when the news about the seat availability broke.
The sky is always falling somewhere.
Must be a lot of Boise fans living in the ATL
In 2005 I was impressed by how many B State fans were in Athens. I am sure there will be more for this game.
Reading the AJC, there are lots of people in the ATL who are gleefully expecting a train wreck. Apparently they are willing to pay good money to witness it.
Ah, yes, the frequenters of the AJ-C blog message boards, the gold standard of ticket sales success.
They’re certainly doing a fine job filling up Grant Field.

Fixed that for you.
As a 30 year contributor to GEEF, I received the e-mail from UGA about the Boise tickets at about 9:30 a.m. on my way to a meeting out of the office. By the time I got back in the office at 3:00 p.m. to order my allotment, they were sold out.
Interesting. Faculty/Staff orders aren’t due until May 31. My guess is that there’s still some in reserve.
